The first fully integrated single-Node Textures toolkit. Create and refine unique Cinematic Film Looks through Grain, Texture, Detail, Soft Clip, and Resize controls. Keyframe every control and render in parallel on multiple GPUs at 32-bit floats precision per channel.

Textures and Details – or Details only – enhancements can be made while resizing. Unlike the 3 controls (Amount, Radius, and Threshold) of an Unsharp Mask filter, Reverator empowers you with a single global slider to enhance or soften Textures and/or Details. Presets automate resizing to and from common Video, HD, UHD, Film, and D-Cinema formats. Alternatively, one can take manual control over Textures and Details at any resolution with Pan, Scan, Fit, or Crop framing. When not resizing, Aperture correction restores the finest details lost in Film scans with – or without – accentuating subtle textures. The image Resizer also enables bypassing of the Textures and Details enhancers.

Texture Pitch

Reverator’s Texture Pitch enables one to selectively reduce or increase the appearance of “Texture” through six automatically derived Texture bands. One can individually adjust each band to emphasize or de-emphasize the boldest to finest local textures. For example, features residing in one band – such as fine-sized pores – can be accentuated or diminished without affecting medium-sized skin textures residing in another band. Texture bands can be used to isolate and reduce unwanted details such as digital camera noise, or – in conjunction with Reverator’s highlight Soft Clips – defocus blown highlights. A bypass button toggles the effects of Texture Pitch.

Cinematic Film Looks

Add cinematic-quality grain to your grades, camera profile LUTs, creative look LUTs, Film emulation LUTs, and negative and print LUTs. Unlike blended overlays of Film scans and simulated grain textures that float on top of footage, Reverator – just like real Film – flips the script whereby footage is ingrained. As your Film grains define the image sensor, your S-curve tonalities are transformed into natural grain expressions of silver halide’s undulating sensitivity to light, yielding film-like Dmin and Dmax with options for pure blacks and whites without grains.

For precise Film stock emulations, grains can be independently modeled for each color plane. Leverage the vast expanse of grain Size, Granularity, Softness, Shape, Density, Strength, and Motion for unrivaled matching of existing shots. And with Agfa, Fuji, Ilford, and Kodak out of the picture, what’s preventing you from creating your very own new and improved color and black & white Film stocks.

By adding subtle Film grain, your footage is perceived as having more depth and containing more detail than in Film grain’s absence. Realistic Film grain textures can substitute the denoising outcomes of higher ISOs. True Film grain motion can be used to mask color banding, suppress compression blockiness, or impart a bit of natural grit and warmth to digital footage that’s just too pristine looking.

HDR Compensation

Reverator is perfect for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and the latest Ultra Wide Gamut (UWG) workflows. Reverator’s Texture Pitch, Details enhancer, Textures enhancer, Aperture corrector, Resizer, and Film grain generator all perform intelligent gamut-extents suppression. Reverator’s Soft Clips can provide cinematic renditions of Speculars and Highlights. And when used In conjunction with Film grain and Texture Pitch, a cinematic blooming effect can be applied to overexposed areas. One can also manually set lower and upper limits on color gamut extents.

Precise Control


Cinematic Film LooksCinematic Film Looks

As fine adjustments are made to your Cinematic Film Look settings, you can temporarily change the “Grain dispersion” mode from random to constant. This way the same grain pattern and orientation persists frame-to-frame, making it less distracting as you dial in your Cinematic Film Look. Your adjustments can be monitored by isolating viewing to planar mode, blocking out grain interference from other color channels. Here, the masking effects of Film grains on the Resizer, Texture Pitch, Details enhancer, and Textures enhancer can be closely scrutinized.

Save and Recall Plugin Settings


Cinematic Film LooksCinematic Film Looks

Over 45 Customizable image Resizer, Texture Pitch, Details enhancer, Textures enhancer, Aperture corrector, Highlight and Shadow Soft Clips, HDR compensation, and Film grain settings can be saved and recalled from disk. The same text-editable plugin settings file can be run by the power-user from a standalone terminal / command line interface (CLI). Scripted image sequences from the CLI run faster than through the OpenFX plugin as more buffers remain in place from one frame to the next. Over 20 Still image formats are supported, with each color channel processed at full 32-bit floating point precision.
